With DreamWorks Animation’s animated sequel, “How to Train Your Dragon 2″, releasing in theaters earlier this year, the animated film company brought their newest film to last week’s New York Comic-Con in a brand new way with their virtual-reality experience booth! Using the Oculus Rift, a virtual-reality headset previously seen in several booths at this summer’s San Diego Comic-Con, the exhibit provided visitors with an interactive gaming experience, allowing players to control an airborne dragon as it flies through several obstacles.


The exhibit, designed to resemble Viking vessels similar to the ones seen in the film, featured unique seating that mimicked the way the movie portrayed riders on their dragons, and featured a number of interactive features to make the experience even more realistic. These included a vibrating motor placed underneath the seat that activated on turns or other bumpy aerial maneuvers, and a fan pointed at the users’ faces that would turn and shift direct based on where you piloted your dragon steed! All of these additions turned the game into an interactive experience for fans of all ages.

With this year’s San Deigo Comic-Con opening its doors to fans across the world in the coming week, 20th Century Fox has revealed its plans to create a virtual reality exhibit at the event based on the popular X-Men franchise! This interactive experience, which will utilize the popular Oculus Rift VR headset, will recreate the X-Men’s iconic machine, Cerebro. This machine, used by the X-Men’s leader, Professor X, to find fellow mutants throughout the world through the use of brainwaves, will be emulated through the use of the Oculus Rift technology, allowing user to virtually track down mutants and characters like the shape-shifting Mystique.

The 360-degree exhibit will include a replica of Professor X’s wheelchair for users to sit in, and will even feature a short interactive film to walk user through the experience. The exhibit will also feature a limited edition Blu-ray box set, which includes the entire library of previously released X-Men movies in a replica case of the Cerebro helmet! Fox will also be promoting the Blu-ray release of the upcoming “X-Men: Days of Future Past” movie on October 14th, and hopes to make their booth a must-see for everyone at the event.
